    Windows 10 Desktop background photo not changing

    Setup - two monitors. Nvidia Quatro graphic card

    Desktop background problem
    I have set Personalisation - Desktop Background - Slideshow - Set Location to a Photo folder to use Photos - Change every minute - Shuffle Off (tried On as well but makes no difference) - Fit set to Fit.

    Problem is that the images never change, though they are different ones on the two monitors.

    I have tried various permutations of the above without any success. Which folder of photos I use doesn't make any difference to the situation - same two photos displayed.

    My wife's laptop which is setup in the same way seems to have a similar but not identical problem. hers changes but only selects from 4 photos despite more being available in the chosen folder.

    Suggestions appreciated!

    This might be a bug/issue with the "Anniversary Update". Report this to MS using the Feedback option.....this will do a few things. It will report it to MS and if anybody else has a similar issue it will show up similar reports. Which some may have some fixes or work arounds to try.

    Thanks for that suggestion. Never having sent feedback to MS, where do I find that option? Is it on their site or on my PC?
